Very well kept campground, with a lot of activities. We stayed for the first Halloween weekend, and there was a lot of activities for kids, including a haunted hayride and trick or treating. The pools look like they would be nice in season, but they are only 3 1/2 feet at the deepest end. This campground is geared to younger kids, but teenagers will find a lot to do also. Most sites are gravel and fairly level. Water pressure and electricity were both good. Interior roads are fair. There are a lot of things to do in the immediate area. We are looking forward to returning to this campground next year. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Quarryville in a Travel Trailer.

Excellent campground! Stayed in site 312 which was very easy to back in and all of the hookups where very accessible. Our friends camped in the surrounding sites and cabins. Numerous amenities for the kids to do, even with the water park closed. Staff members were very accommodating and friendly, including escorting us to our site. Our group rented the hot tub. It was heavily used by all. We are already looking at our calendars and trying to find another weekend we can go back! We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Quarryville in a Travel Trailer.

Really nice family place. We rented a cabin and it was really cute. It was the rustic cabin. The only thing was it was like sleeping on a brick. They really need to upgrade those. But beside that, it was a really fun weekend. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Quarryville in a Campground Cabin.

Nice park, but a little over-priced. Definitely oriented toward small children only. Pool is too small and only 3.5 ft. deep. Water park is great for little kids. Roads are kind of narrow and un-paved. The park is almost an hour from Lancaster shops, buffets, etc. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Quarryville in a Motorhome.

We've stayed here many times in the past few years and always enjoy our time here. There are lots of amenities and my girls always have a great time. Water park is great. Mini-Golf is fun. Jumping pillow is always a huge hit with the kids. We prefer the pull-through sites but the other sites are easy to get into also. A little expensive but worth it when you factor in all of the amenities. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Quarryville in a Travel Trailer.

Jellystone Park Quarryville is a very nice campground. The campground is well kept and maintained, from weed removal to cleanliness and the condition of their buildings. The park offers some great activities everyday for families and children to get involved in (some have an additional charge). The greatest asset of this campground is the pool and water park that is included in the price for camping. The pool and water playground are perfect for members of the family of all ages. They are well kept and very clean. The complaint that I would have related to the water facilities would be that in the water park a number (4 or 5) of the interactive devices (water guns, plungers and spray nozzles) were not functioning during our visit. To ensure the maximum impact of the park the owners & staff should ensure that the park and all it's features are working. The park also offers a gem mining experience (additional cost), a very nice miniature golf course (included), pedal bikes (included) and a jumping pillow for the kids. The campground has also just built a new washroom and shower facility. This building is very nice and offered clean toilets and showers that are cleaned multiple times per day. To improve this park there are a number of things that would improve the experience. The park has the potential to be a 10 out of 10, but to get there they need a few improvements. First their event staff did not seem very engaged to our family. An example would be the hay ride staff who loaded the wagon and started a game with the riders to say "Hey" to all we see on the journey. They then proceeded to start a conversation with each other, and text on their phones, rather than engage the riders. We stayed at the North Java Jellystone earlier this year and their event staff for the hay ride included a costumed bear and a lead of a sing song for the kids on the wagon. Additionally, the registration staff were very friendly, but the store clerk had some real attitude issues. At times we observed her presenting a non-caring attitude towards the customers when they asked her for assistance. She was much more interested in herself than serving the customers. The last drawback to site for this campground would be the size of the sites themselves. We stayed on site 69 and found that we had to park our trailer on one side, then put up our dining tent outside the door, leaving just enough room for the fire pit and our camp chairs. We then had to park our truck on the roadside to leave us enough room to move around. Many of the other sites were very similar in size and do not offer much room to move around. All in all we enjoyed our time at Jellystone Quarryville and would recommend it to others. For the money and this type of experience I would recommend Jellystone North Java, but Quarryville has a lot going for it and offers a lot to the camper.

This was our second time here. This CG is way overpriced. The entrance road is horrible. All the roads in the CG are dirt/gravel and are extremely dusty. It is so bad that on check in days they water the main roads. Really didn't help seeing the water dried up in an hour. The "water zone" is nice for smaller kids. The water slides are a joke. They are so slow I watched adults get up and walk partially down them. We thought they would have fixed this by now. The bees were so bad at the pool, we killed seven and had one person in our party get stung, in a single day. There is no adult only pool like more of the nicer parks now a days. The pool doesn't open until 11:00. They closed the water park for hours because they said they found human waste in it. I find it funny that we have been to over 40 campgrounds and the only 4 times this has happened, it was at two different Jellystone parks. I see a pattern here. You can only redeem game room tickets twice a day. You know what it is like telling kids that just spent their money they have to wait 5 hours to get the prizes. The camp store is very pricey but pretty well stocked. Golf carts rented for $60/day. That is also very expensive compared to other large resorts. We prepaid per their request thinking you would just pull in and be guided to your site, but nope we had to get out of the vehicle go inside and go through and old school check in process that took 10 minutes after waiting in line. Cable channels were very minimal. They only have Wi-Fi at the office. We just got back from a CG at the beach that had a real water park and more amenities and was way cheaper. I would expect this type of CG when you are paying $40-50/night not almost $100. This was definitely our last time here. All four families we traveled with have decided to move to another CG next year. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Quarryville in a Travel Trailer.

We've been coming to this campground for the past 5 years and have watched them transition from a pool and mini-golf course to what it is now. My girls had a blast. However, as the previous reviewer mentioned, there were some issues that need to be addressed. The problem with the hornets, yes, paper nest hornets, and bees at the pool, pavilion and camp store needs to be addressed. My daughter was stung and thankfully didn't have a reaction. When I mentioned this to the camp store, I was told they had ice for sale in the freezer! I wasn't looking for a hand out, but, I certainly was looking for a little compassion for my 5 year old along with a promise to do something. We MUST have been at the pool the same week because there were many parents with non-potty trained kids in both the water park AND pool, sans swim diapers! The lifeguards refused to question the parents. Low and behold, for 3 days in a row, we had human waste in the pool AND waterpark! Once again, nothing done. The activities are wonderful as are the camp counselors. The girls had a wonderful time. I think I would have enjoyed it more if I didn't have to carry a fly swatter around to chase the bees!

We had a great time here. Great place for kids, lots for them to do. The CG was very busy and the staff was still very helpful and friendly. I didn't witness any yelling or swearing as mentioned earlier. The bathhouse on the hill is the best one, it's a modular building that is fairly new, air conditioned and clean. The one nearest the pool is a little old and cramped but not too bad. Didn't use the one near the jumping pillow area. Store is great, has everything you need, and the drive to town isn't bad if you opt to go to a grocery store. This is a very peaceful, beautiful area of PA and the CG is very well kept. The only negative things I would say are: 1. The pool was overcrowded and warm (thought the waterpark was awesome), it would be good to have another pool. 2. We didn't observe quiet hours being enforced and unfortunately were situated near some late night, loud neighbors. 3. The pedal carts, while super fun for our kids, need to be worked on and perhaps a few more added to the fleet. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Quarryville in a Tent Trailer.

We were extremely disappointed, with this campground. We had 4 of our grandchildren, with us. The bathrooms and showers were filthy. WIFI was very poor. The 3 ft swimming pool was full of hair. It was quite disgusting. There are not Life Guards but pool attendants. The pool is Swim at Your Own Risk. The activities and amenities are very far apart. The roads are stony and rutted. The are golf carts, for rent, but very very limited. We would not return to this campground. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Quarryville in a Travel Trailer.

Nice campground for young children. The waterpark is small. The only swimming pool at the park is considered an "activity" pool. This would be a nicer park if they had a second pool to relax in. Pool area is too small to enjoy on a crowded weekend. Jumping pillow and pedal carts are nice. Although there are only 8 pedal carts, not thirty as stated in the brochure. These areas are unattended and there were young children unsupervised walking onto the track. Some sites are very tight. Our site was 117 and it had two small trees in the center that need cut down. Our small Travel Trailer barely fit, and the awning hit the trees. I'd recommend sites 101 thru 111 or 119 thru 125. We like the trash / recycling option. The owner does have a "yelling" problem. One day he walked through the waterpark threatening to close it because one person was illegally parked. Why would you threaten 100 people for one parked car?! Nice enough park, but not sure we will be back. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Quarryville in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed at this CG for 4 days the end of this June and it was a wonderful experience. I experienced none of the rudeness with respect to the CG owners and staff, everyone was very accommodating. This CG has a wonderful and warm pool with many water slides and attractions to keep all ages satisfied in the water. Special attractions include a bouncing pillow (large ground mounted, air filled trampoline) and pedal carts, along with a fishing pond and some planned activities. We stayed on a buddy site in the 200 section and this site was level, large, wooded and easily accessible to all activities and the office/store; which by the way, was absolutely the best I have ever seen. Large, very well stocked and appointed beautifully and the staff was very helpful, not terribly pricey either. As is policy with all Yogi CGs, they escort you to your site and they deliver firewood albeit with a large enough order. We brought our own wood to the CG and never had a problem. Water pressure could have been better, but hey, the very modern and clean restroom in our section even had air conditioning. Nice, since it was in the 90's all 4 days. As for the negative reviews concerning the bath house closest to the pool/office, again I did not witness this and found this restroom to be clean. Quiet hours were adhered to as patrols were routine, and the CG speed limit is very strictly enforced because of all the kids there for the water park. Overall park appearance was very nice: grass mowed, roads maintained, buildings maintained, no litter and only a few permanent sites. Not many golf carts either. They even pick up your trash bags on site and have on-site recycling with pick up. (another Yogi policy) This CG is a bit pricey, but we really never saw our kids they were so entertained (ages 7 to 16 between 3 families)so the entertainment value alone is worth it. This is top notch facility and we will definitely be going back. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Quarryville in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here for my daughter's birthday weekend (she turned 7) with my son (4) and step-son (5). Also my brother and his family, daughter (5) and son (3), camped too. We had a blast. The kids loved the water park, peddle cars and giant jumping mat. We had a visit from Yogi with a cake for my daughter's birthday and she was all smiles. My son keeps asking if we can go for his birthday in August so we'll be booking soon. The sites were a good size and the bathhouses were very clean. I thought the staff was excellent: very friendly and accommodating. The water park isn't theme-park quality, but the little ones didn't care. They were thrilled. They also have activities going on all day long for the kids to do. I would highly recommend this park. We're going back. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Quarryville in a Motorhome.

This owner was fighting with everyone. Someone was parked about 6 inches past the steps and this owner yelled and cursed at an elderly lady trying to park in a full lot. The sites are small and the staff drives around all day and night like cops looking to yell at people for violations. Trash and dirt blows around this campground when it is windy. They need to hire a janitor instead of site police. The rest rooms were filthy. Very small water park! If you are coming for the water park or with kids, I suggest you find another campground. This owner is a bully and needs to lose his franchise tag acting like this. He is giving Jellystone a bad name. He gave me a few dirty looks just for watching him yell at several people. At least he was smart and didn't want to pick a fight with a 250 pound man. Never again! We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Quarryville in a Travel Trailer.

This was our third stay here, each time for the paint ball weekend. We stayed at a 2-family site, 10 and 10A, with friends and the site was really big and easy to get in and out of. We were escorted to our site. They've made several improvements- new gravel on sites and roads, fence around the jumping pillow, pedal cart track, outdoor movie theater. They also recycle now and provide each site with a recycle bin that they come and empty while taking your trash. There were lots of planned activities for kids. We really love this campground and are hoping to get back in the summer when the water park is open. Prices go up really high in the summer from $60 in April to $98 in summer months, but that will include water park passes.
